A Calling . From the Desert . To the Sea

Fearing that her younger sister will be married off just like she was, Ahlam lures Yasmin to run away with her by telling a story of a mythical sea that lies beyond the desolate desert and its mountains. In search of this sea, the two sisters journey far from their home, predetermined fate and secluded life with their father.


A trio of female wedding singers find freedom in their art in this evolving Tunisian documentary. In a small Tunisian town, filmmaker Director Sonia Ben Slama chronicles the daily lives of Fatma and her daughters Najeh and Waffeh, “Machtat,” or traditional musicians. They plant, pick, and weed in the winter, then celebrate and bless weddings in the summe
